Yesterday the family of Anthony AJ Elfalak, who was missing for more than three days in Putty, issued the following statement:
Our family is together again. For that we are grateful to everyone who has assisted in any way over the last three days.
Thank you to the NSW Police, Rescue Services, volunteers, community members, friends and family who have worked tirelessly to find AJ.
AJ is fine. Hold your kids close.
Please give our family the privacy to appreciate what we have.
